(By wearing something other than a tuxedo)
The idea of wearing a perfectly cut tux or sharp suit to a fancy New Year’s Eve party is great and all, but some years the plan is decidedly more low key. However, this doesn’t mean, that you should wear any old tee and jeans. Try stepping things up with one of these night-out staples for a dapper (but still festive) look.
While these looks are all over the map in terms of vibe, the share in common three key traits: a heavy reliance on black, hard-bottom shoes to complete the look, and serious grooming game. Take notes, assemble the ingredients, then get out there and give 2017 the burial it deserves.
Look like a proper gentleman by picking up a slim turtleneck instead of your go-to sporty sweatshirt.
